    And now . . In this morning's paper, The Waste Connections manager said, literally, "Get Over It" . . He stated that the City, literally, had no choice. "The Landfill operator, Zupan, was going broke", he said, ignoring the facts that for some odd reason, back then, Zupan's Applications for State Permits mysteriously got stonewalled at the state level, with help from within the City management, the Council and the County Health Department.

    City Council couldn't wait to throw Zupan to the dogs and get Waste Connections on board. They were going to do so many wonderful things that the liberals in City Government desired for the rest of us, like Mandatory Trash Collection and Recycling (at our expense, of course) and they were going to eliminate all the trash truck traffic on the streets, etc . .

    Apparently, as with any public office holder, they left any economic acumen they may have had, at the door when they took the oath of office! Like the fact that the City and County of Pueblo has the highest poverty level in the state per capita, and that Pueblo has a lower standard of living than any other city of comparable size in the state. Or . . That the city, up to that time, had been dictating the landfill rates, thus establishing a reason for Zupan not raising his rates at the landfill.

    Minor . . History is best remembered by the victims. Not the profiteer.

    Do I hear recall? Zupan was good for Pueblo it treated people fair. Everytime we needed them they came forward when my kids would clean up the city or some old persons yard. But this has been the plan for about the last 15 years I belive. What happened to the last methane plant that was out out at the dump? Didnt they spend millions with no returns at tax payers expense.
